Exhibition stand build and corporate interiors specialist Von Hagen GmbH in Blomberg, Germany is breaking new ground as a business, with the installation of an Océ Arizona XT extra-large UV flatbed printer from Canon. The new printer is creating the scope for Von Hagen to print onto a range of rigid substrates as part of complex exhibition stand or brand architecture briefs. The company has handled print in-house for some eight years, although only on flexible materials such as papers and textiles until now. The ability to print on rigid materials has revolutionised working practices, and opened up new avenues for business growth.
"The Océ Arizona has it all; size, productivity and the versatility to deal with a wide variety of flexible and rigid materials. Together, this means we can offer clients a much more cost-effective and time-efficient way of creating their stands. Now that we can print on any substrates, we can realise virtually any creative idea."
